KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. (AP) -- Rory McIlroy and Vijay Singh are tied for the lead in the third round of the PGA Championship, which is being delayed because of storms in the area.

McIlroy birdied five of his first eight holes Saturday before a bogey on No. 9 dropped him back to 6-under par, even with Singh.

Tiger Woods entered the day sharing the lead, but was 3 over through seven to fall five strokes off the pace.

Adam Scott is second, a stroke behind the leaders. Carl Pettersson is another shot back.

McIlroy saved par on the third hole after his tee shot became stuck in a tree, and aside from that adventure, he wasn't having much trouble with Kiawah Island's Ocean Course early on.
